As someone for whom glueup never goes well, I have to crow about what happened to me last night. I had a glueup so smooth it was like a religious experience. I’m building a tall thin cabinet (based on “Chimney Cabinet” from PW) in Spanish Cedar.


The main door will have a mirror set in it, and the large main compartment will be subdivided into cubbyholes etc. Basically, it’s going to be a huge valet for ties, jewlery, belts, etc. I am not planning to finish the inside so the smell will be preserved.

Man… my shop looks like a dark cave in that shot.

While I’m at it, can I gloat about all this UHMW-PE that a friend got for me? :-)

that cabinet sure looks like it’s at a great start. how many cross panels are there? top, bottom, and 1 in between?

I like UHMW for jigs/runners. looks like a nice stash.

I’ve loved chimney cabinets since I saw Norm build one on NYW years ago. Nicely done so far. How come your first blog entry on it is the glueup?
